Old Delhi was founded as Shahjahanabad by Mughal Emperor Shahjahan in 1639. It remained the capital of the Mughals until the end of the Mughal dynasty. Many people tend to get confused between Delhi and New Delhi. To be precise, New Delhi is the later development done to Delhi or Old Delhi. The Old Delhi was the place that the Mughal kings ruled for centuries. This part has most of the old monuments, palaces and buildings. New Delhi comes under the same government and started becoming popular much after independence in spite of being a creation of the British Raj. This part is made up of the best restaurants, clubs, cafes, contemporary and modern museums, offices and other extensions. Malls are also an important feature of New Delhi which makes it different from the old markets of Old Delhi.

Old DelhiSomething you'll imagine like Delhi-6 , Chandni Chowk, Paranthe Vali gali, some old fashioned homes, and pigeons of that typical Masakali types.
A place highly recommended by my side and a place which was on top in my bucket list. But finding Al Jawahar was a really difficult task as the rikshawalas have their own terminologies :-PSo just head over to tge the street directly opposite to Gate no 1 . of Jama Masjid. Al Jawahar renamed after Jawaharlal Nehru, is a perfect place to satisfy your non veg satiety. Do taste butter chicken there. For vegetarians- Shahi paneer is a must try. Address:- 8, Jama Masjid - Matia Mahal Road, Matia Mahal, Opposite Gate 1, Jama Masjid, New DelhiCost :- ₹600 for two people (approx)
day 4 starts with visiting lal quila and then jama masjid and old delhi shops and then bangla sahib gurudwara and agra sen ki baoli and took afternoon train to come back to calcutta .
Being the Capital city of India, culture and heritage of Old Delhi is well preserved. Old Delhi, previously known as Shahjahanabad was built in Mughal Era, and one can see the blend of history and modernization here.It is paradise for people seeking culture and wants to immerse themselves in Indian culture. Old Delhi is so full of thrifty shopping places, religious places, food bazaars and lot more. A visit to these places is a must.
A short video that I made while walking around Old Delhi!
Welcome to my another blog post on the heart of Delhi which is, of course, the real Delhi founded by the maker of the Taj Mahal Mughal emperor Shah Jahan, During 17th Century Shah Jahan with her daughter Jahan Ara designed this place as a wholesale market for the people to buy all kinds of goods, so from then this place has its own significance in terms of oldest and busiest market of Delhi.So this place attracts many visitors for being one of the best markets in India for shopping goods such as clothes, electronics, household items, exotic perfumes and you name it you will get everything over here and also for authentic delicious street food from Parathas of Parathe Wali Gali to Hotel Karim’s of Kababian Gali. old-delhi-marketChandni Chowk Street
Kabootar Bazi is a traditional pigeon-endurance race invented by the Mughals centuries ago and it remains a popular spectator sport in Delhi. Pigeon racing can be seen in many parts of the world, but in Delhi, the grandeur is bigger and better. Approximately 500 people in Old Delhi train pigeons for this sport. So, how do people track these pigeons and decide on the winner? The racing pigeons are tagged with a ring around their legs containing details of name, gender, age, address of the loft and a certain identification number. Organizers are stationed at specific points, taking stock of how far each pigeon has flown and within what time.
